|''Molly Goldberg'' gives message to potential sponsors|
Not sure what this is, but it appears at the end of an episode of "The Goldbergs" which I uploaded at here . It appears to have been a message given by Gertrude Berg ("Molly Goldberg") to attract potential sponsors to her series, which at that point aired in first-run-syndication. A large number of actual episodes of the series can be viewed elsewhere on this website. I recommend the 1954 episodes as being better than the 1955 episode I link to above.

|1953 Episode of ''Texaco Star Theatre'' with Gertrude Berg|
An interesting 1953 episode of Milton Berle's "Texaco Star Theatre" from 1953, with special guest star Gertrude Berg, playing her popular character "Molly Goldberg". Gertrude was in fact the first Jewish actress to have her own popular sitcom. This comedy-variety series aired on NBC Television Network. The picture quality is a little poor, but watchable.
